I.O.E.C was established in Durban in September 1972 to take advantage of a need for a trading house to supply, initially, building materials to the Indian Ocean Islands.

Since then it has grown into one of the largest trading houses of its kind in South Africa. We supply a broad range of products to over 25 countries grouped broadly as: Africa/Indian Ocean Islands, The Middle East and The Pacific Rim.

The IOEC group of companies is internationally based with the South African head office situated in the East Coast City of Durban. The port of Durban handles the greatest volume of sea-going traffic of any port in Southern Africa.

The company offers a wide range of export services. These include supplying full ranges of products to our buyers, as well as acting as the exporting arm for certain manufacturers, with the objective of building their brands in key markets. The company's expertise lies in our knowledge of its markets and South African products, as well as the ability to handle all aspects of the logistics of export, marketing, merchandising and selling.

The major product categories that we export are: Food Products, Building Materials, Tyres, Glass Packaging and a wide variety of smaller categories.

We believe that we are well positioned to continue being a competitive supplier to our markets, in view of South Africa's participation in globalisation of world economics.
